I've been posting a few times lately, but I'm almost there now!!
So everything works fine, I managed to find how to stream in multi bitrate, when I call the file 1 and 2, I can see the two streams in different bitrates.
The problem I have right now is with the manifest, that would dynamically switch bitrates. I always end up with messages like there's a missing URL in the F4M manifest. The URL is present, I'm not quite sure where that message come from... Can someone tell me where that file has to be located though? In the _definst_ directory, or in the webroot...? Or somewhere else? I also tried deleting them all, so I could point out which file is used, but surprisingly, I still get the message that the URL is missing from the manifest. While I deleted manifest files...! Any suggestions??
I've been negotiating through this process myself as of late, so I'm hoping my newfound familiarity with how this works will be of help to you...
I've been successful with placing the manifest files (.f4m for the HDS version that will display on desktops with the Flash plugin, .3mu8 for the HLS version that will display on iOS devices), in my FMS' webroot folder.
Then, I code my html file to access these files at that location, and to use a copy of the Strobe Media Player to play them on, (which is included in the "samples" folder on the FMS: FMS->samples->videoPlayer->swfs->StrobeMediaPlayback.swf )
I'll be happy to share a copy of my .html file code if it helps, just let me know.
Hope to have been some help to you.
